Even for us boatless people it has been hard not reading the great reports. I have been getting so much work done I am actually going to graduate from UTMB. I only wish I would have found this great group of fishermen earlier in my stay at Galveston. I have learned so much and had a blast doing it. Now I just need to line up a multi day trip as a Ph.D. graduation present to myself. Does anyone have any suggestions on boats that do multi-day trips? The Akela is a little out of my price range, but is about the only option I know of. I was working on a trip on the margarita 3 with the hired captian, but the owner sold the boat and Terry now runs a different boat. The Capt John is not going to be a good option either, they are planning on taking 35 people on their 60 hour trips.
